    My hand Ache

    • Written by from Singapore

    Well functionalities are superb. But the mouse is so flat and it is very difficult to get use to it, if you are going to use it for a long hour, your ring finger will start to ache. and the edges are too sharp so After a long hour of use your whole hand will start to ache.

    So small...yet so big!

    • Written by from Crockett

    I love the size of this mouse. It feels great when using it, and it's so precise. With hardly any effort in its use. After going through so many different mice, I can't believe it took me this long to try the Apple Magic Mouse.

    Horrible. Really.

    • Written by from Vancouver

    I am a fan of Apple, have a Macbook, Macbook Pro, iPhone and many other cool things Apple offers. I have purchased 3 mice for our company and was VERY VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED with it. It is heavy. You CAN'T feel it in your palm, tracking is not optimal. All in all, if you are a professional who does graphic design or video design and animation, this mouse would be the worst choice.
    How could Apple drop the ball like this?
    I would not even give it one star.
    Without exagerration, this is the worst mouse i used since 1999 or so. And we will definately return them.

    Crazy Zoom??

    • Written by from Medina

    The swipe is great. The multi button is great. The scroll zoom is HORRIBLE!

    I use Cinema 4D and other 3D modeling as well as a lot of Adobe products. This mouse loves to zoom to infinite levels in a project if you so much as look at it wrong.

    If that "flick scroll, infinite zoom" thing can be fixed, it would be an easy 5 stars.......but because it is SO annoying, only 3 stars ( and that is generous!)

    Not a great mouse

    • Written by from Canton

    This mouse is really sleek and modern looking. The problem is that it is extremely uncomfortable to use. It is WAY too flat, and too narrow. The gestures are extremely different than the trackpad, and you cant have two fingers on the mouse when you do anything. You have to have only one finger touching the surface for a right click, for scrolling, etc. Not happy in the least.

    Just get a plain mouse....

    • Written by from WOODBURY

    Reconsider purchasing this mouse----it seems cool, but don't be fooled. I have stopped using my magic mouse and went for old-fashioned wired mouse. Has problem connecting half the time, and other times does not work at all on some games. Please, Apple, improve this seemingly awesome product!!!

    Cool, could be better...

    • Written by from Skopje

    I've used this mouse for about two years now, and must say it's OK, but could be better.

    The "pro" part is: design (looks cool), connectivity via bluetooth (never had problems with that, though I sometimes had to restart my Mac so it could "see" the mouse), and scrolling (though there's some about this in the "con" part as well).

    The "con" part: eats batteries - about 6 per month (when working/designing everyday), scrolling is nice (but for the price - should be more precise), price is high, and it sometimes confuses right/left clicks.

    All in all, I've gotten used to it, and I work with it everyday, but improvements need to be made to meet the price vs value requirements.

    Another great Apple product

    • Written by from Richmond

    Love this mouse. I love how you can do all the things with the mouse just like with the trackpad. However the way this mouse make you hold your hand does hurt after a while of using it. If it had been designed differently I probably would have given this mouse a 5 star rating.

    Apple's New Magic Mouse

    • Written by from Hausen am Albis

    Apple's New Magic Mouse is a fantastic piece of design.
    It works very well but has two major flaws.

    1. If for some reason, the bluetooth connection is lost, you will have to connect a USB mouse to your computer, to reactivate the mouse.

    2. The new touchpad is fantastic in every application EXCEPT Design Programmes, for example, Illustrator or Freehand, where it is far too easy to accidentally swipe the surface and your design will go flying off the screen. This happens to me about ten times a day, if not more... I'm trying to retrain my fingers but this is tough to avoid.

    Great if you have small "danty" hands

    • Written by from Oklahoma City

    Totally love all the features of this new mouse! Unfortunately, it's ergonomics are more suited for small hands. It would be nice if it were, at least, a half inch wider and longer. If not that a bit higher in the curvature as to better fit a larger hand.

    Maybe a larger version can be developed for us "Gigantor" types.

    Uncomfortable.

    • Written by from warrenville

    This is by far the worst mouse I've ever own. I'm a photographer and I spend a lot of time in front of my computer editing. I bought this because of its wireless capabilities, however, It is so uncomfortable to work with. After the first hours my wrist was really in pain and the pain increases as you use it.

    It's is a nice looking mouse and it goes pretty good with your laptop, but I you are considering buying this to work doing edition you should consider another one

    Great OSX mouse

    • Written by from Glen Burnie

    After using this mouse at home, I find it very difficult to go back to a Logitech BT mouse on my work computer. Then again, I get the 'why is a PC so difficult to use and so slow' feeling on every windows PC I've ever used. This mouse, was 2 steps on OSX, batteries in, power on, (wait 5 seconds or so) mouse working! On windows, just like any other bluetooth mouse, 10+ steps, a download, a bunch of balloon popups, more balloon popups, a failure or two, reboot, another download a bunch of next, next, ok, next, next, yes, ok, Agree, next, next, and struggle to work, struggle to keep Bluetooth connection. This I would not blame on Apple, but don't buy this thinking because it's an Apple mouse, that your PC will magically work better. If you have an iMac, this is the only mouse for you!

    MagicPrefs free software will allow you to customize the mouse and pad to your liking. Swipes, gestures, click area's, secret app shortcut taps if you want!

    The first generation mouse batteries lasted 6 months for me. This second magic mouse came with my 27" iMac. The batteries last 4 weeks max. I need to go to the person I sold my '08 iMac to, and secretly swap the mouse, he'll never know. Apple, if you are listening, I would gladly pay 99$ for a 6,000 MAH lithium ion equipped 1 year rechargeable battery + dock. Or even a inductive charging mouse pad, so it never needs charging!

    Size is too Small

    • Written by from South San Francisco

    Multi-touch design is good.

    But the mouse itself is too small even for my medium size hand.
    Awesome if you only need the mouse for 5min.
    Start hurting my hand after using it for 20min.

    Inconsistant

    • Written by from Emporia

    When it works it's too awesome. I love the touch sensitive scrolling. However, it has a tendency to loose connection. According to tech support wi-fi networks, microwaves and cordless phones can interfere with the signal. Well I live in the apartment, and my air port card can detect six different networks. Obviously I have a lot of stray signals I can do nothing about. I really wish they had a wired version of it, That I would buy.

    I'm shopping for a mouse, but I just can't buy another one of these

    • Written by from MARION

    I've got at least four of these. I love the finger action for scrolling; I'm going to miss that. I love the simple feel of it. But this mouse just has problems. It eats up batteries like crazy. I always have to have two mice ready for a work week, one mouse has a charger, one goes on batteries. I keep a pack of batteries at all times. But this mouse can't be trusted. Sometimes it will just quit working -- new batteries, charged up... doesn't matter. It just disconnects. Sometimes, it simply won't track. That is the most annoying. I'm trying to work and I'm constantly fiddling with this mouse to see what the problem is now: need batteries? bad surface? hates my dress?

    I can never trust that this mouse is going to work and I am sick of it.

    Battery Hog!

    • Written by

    Magic mouse is a battery hog. My office Logitech wireless mouse with 5 buttons has also two AA cells but out lasts Magic mouse 5 to 1. I used my office mouse longer per day than my home Apple mouse. For 18 months I haven't needed battery cells for Logitech while my Apple Magic mouse eats battery cells almost every 4 months. I suspect it is a poor design and consumes power every time your hand touches it. So if you are thinking or reading a document with the hand resting on the mouse, it continues to draw power even when no action is occurring.

    Too wireless !!!

    • Written by from Ste-Marthe-sur-le-lac

    Good mouse, good idea but way too wireless. in a prepress production environment where the mice is open 15 hours a day, 2 AA regular batteries is just not enough. Why Apple didn't built it with internal rechargeable battery with a connectable USB wire that can be hooked up while working or off-hours for recharging???
